Hi, I’m working on cubpub.wordpress.com. Soon I will purchase the customization and moving hosting upgrades. Before I do I want to make a decent, simple background to go behind the content (which will be in white). First I tried making diagonal stripes but I found that they weren’t lining up right, so I turned to a gradient background.
I used this text in the css (preview mode), however it replaced the entire background with the gradient, removing all white areas even behind text. What can I do to get something simple like a gradient behind these content areas?
